While the Patriots celebrated the touchdown, Brady trotted off the field and kept going, vanishing through the tunnel. Initial reports from the press box indicated that Brady was questionable to return with an arm injury, but he returned to the sideline five minutes later, and following a Miami punt, he was back in the game without missing a play.
Brady hit Moss in stride behind the secondary inside the 15-yard line for the score. But Brady took a hit from his right side from Randy Starks and landed hard on his back.
Brady came into the game with right shoulder and finger injuries.
